Jack Smith Lake

G'day Readers,
Yesterday I got to spend a few very pleasant hours with the BLEG mob again at JSLake. The day got off to a remarkable start with a Spotted Harrier and a Blue-winged Parrot being ticked almost straight away.

 John H was there with his big lump of new glass - his field assistant, Pam, is just out of shot, waiting for John to finish so she can help him carry his camera to the next locality! (Does anyone detect a note of envy?)

 53 species was the count just for the morning. Always great to have such an experienced collection of eyes and ears.

Beaut morning, thanks BLEG, but I got home just in time I think.
